MX945GSE Mini ITX motherboard is designed based on the low-power Intel Navy Pier platform. This small form factor board is built with the space-saving Intel Atom Low Power N270 1.6 GHz Fanless processor (CPU onboard) and the Mobile Intel 945GSE/ICH7M chipset architecture. The most important feature of the Intel Navy Pier platform is the 2.5W low-power CPU.  It features Hyper-Threading Technology which increases system responsiveness while operating in multi-tasking environments. The Mobile Intel 945GSE chipset features an integrated 3D graphic engine based on the Intel GMA 950 architecture and delivers sophisticated graphics for large display or dual display applications via the VGA, 18/24-bit LVDS and DVI interfaces.
